About Melissa

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello all animal lovers!!! I am excited to say that I am very happy that I have the opportunity to help pet lovers while they are away either at my home or at your home. My best friend is a very friendly puppy named Brook. She means the world to me. I will treat your pet as one of my own while they are in my care. In my 30 years of having, raising, and caring for dogs I have never had one complaint. Please read my reviews that speak to who I am and the great passion I have for animals. I take great care in my abilities and I have been with dogs who are skittish that come right to me immediately. I have a great sense of myself and it shows when I first meet you and your precious pet(s).

Testimonials will speak to my commitment and integrity.

Dogs MUST be fully vaccinated and tick and flea free before I will do meet and greet. This is necessary and non-negotiable and included in the dog profile before I accept any dog(s) into my home. Also, Vet information needs to available in case of emergencies.

I have had dogs all of my life and I can't remember when I have never had a dog to care for. I love love love dogs. I am careful, considerate, helpful and kind. My dog has a great life with me. She sleeps with me, walks all the time and of course kisses me all the time. I love taking dogs into my home or at your home to give them the best and most comfortable experience while you're away. I am an advocate for rescues dogs (actually all animals). I have a rescue pup and she is very shy. We are working on it. We love to be around people and other dogs. It is a very rewarding experience to take other pups in my home and at the same time hard to let go. I get attached but in a good way. Walking is one of my favorite things to do. There is a great park close by that I love walking with my dog, it's shady and I takes about 30 to 40 minutes to finish and my dog loves it. I believe in myself and I believe I am a great caregiver. I have been taking care of dogs over 25 years.

Melissa is an expert who I am happy to recommend as knowledgeable, caring and reliable. As a fellow pet sitter, I am very conscientious about who I trust my kids to and Melissa is at the top of my very short list.

Melissa did a great job caring for my baby when i had a last minute business meeting out of town. Melissa & her dog Brook are so sweet & she treated my baby like her own. I was very happy with her! ??
That lady who gave her a bad review should be ashamed of herself for the lies she wrote.
I highly recommend Melissa & have booked future dates already.
Thank you Melissa .. you're fabulous!??

We had a last minute cancellation with another sitter, and got a bit panicked as you can probably imagine. Melissa agreed to do a last minute meet / greet with us, and then took our baby in and treated her like family. She was so good to us and we are eternally grateful for it. We will never try and use another sitter ever again, as we have found the one we know we can trust.

Thanks again Melissa!

Melissa was amazing with my Elly! Her dog got along great with my puppy and they became quick friends. Melissa cared for Elly like her own and kept me updated with many pictures and messages. Thank you so much!
Melissa put my mind at ease and made sure our puppy had a great time!
